Script Timer can perform these actions at specific times of the day, week, month, or year, at regular intervals ranging from one minute to any number of weeks, when the computer enters or leaves an idle state, and just before the computer goes to sleep or just after it wakes up. Using a feature called Dynamic Scheduling, you can also arrange for an AppleScript script to schedule on the fly any other script, application, or workflow at a time of its choice.
Script Timer consists of three separate modules, an editor that you use to create and manipulate scheduling data files, a background scheduling engine that reads the data files and does the actual scheduling work, and a small background tool that monitors
The scheduling engine runs in the user domain, which allows it to be easily controlled by a Start/Stop button in a data file window, and provides for greater security. A log file records each action, including error messages and optional messages returned from a script, allowing for easy troubleshooting and script results recording. The application comes with more than half a dozen sample scripts that illustrate its use, including examples of Finder and third party application scripting, and the use of parameterized scripts. Also included is Track Timer, a script that provides an interface between Script Timer and iTunes for automatic music play.
